On Saturday morning, our Grade 8 to 10 boys attended their last classes for the year and yesterday they started writing their final examinations.  These examinations continue right up to, and including, Friday 28th November.  On Friday afternoon, after the final examinations, they will be involved in checking their examinations scripts, returning text books that they will not require next year and then packing up their possessions.  They are free to leave on holiday at 9.00am on Saturday morning (29 November). 

In a moving Remembrance Day service last Tuesday, our 2015 Heads of Houses read the roll of all those Hiltonians who lost their lives in war.  Mr Venter, Head of our History Department, delivered a meaningful address to put this loss of life into context.

Our final sports fixture of the year, against Michaelhouse on Saturday, was a very special day.  Not only did our teams perform particularly well, but the competition, spirit and camaraderie between the two schools was excellent.  I take this opportunity to congratulate all of our players and coaches on their achievements this term. 

On Sunday evening, Mr Klein Strydom, whose thirty five and a half year career here at Hilton is drawing to a close, fittingly delivered the sermon at our Leavers’ Chapel Service.  This was a very moving occasion and we thank Klein for his wise words of advice to our leavers and for his long and loyal service to this school.
